Batrachomyomachia or the Battle of Frogs and Mice is a parody of the Iliad. The word batrachomyomachia has come to mean "a silly altercation". Translated from ancient Greek and commented by M Altman. Illustrated by Alisa Poret, a Russian painter and illustrator. Although she’s not a well-known name in the field of early Soviet art, her paintings and illustrations have a wonderful vibrancy and depth. The book has one folded illustration which depicts the Battle of Frogs and Mice and the Greek Gods. Published by publishing house Academia, 10 300 copies. Fair condition. Rusted paperclips. Minor distress of the dust cover, loss of material of margins and spine, tears, rubbings. The hardcover has discolouration, staining.
